    This sounds really silly but I dyed my hair at about 4pm with like a hair lightener containing H2O2. I only left it on for about 15 minutes because it seemed like really shifty stuff.

    Anyway it said to use it in like a well ventilated room, well I had it for about 5 minutes without ventilation and about 20 minutes with ventilation (when I was in the shower inc.).

    Basically the contents of this stuff was rather ominously "liquid 1", "liquid 2" and some "blonde powder" stuff which I guess was the peroxide, well I might have inhaled a bit of the powder by accident, but it'll literally be less than 1mg I would have thought.

    Anyway my chest has felt heavy since then, I can breathe and I can take deep breaths, it just feels "heavy" and it's a bit uncomfortable. I've had a nap to see if I can like "reset" myself, as sometimes I make myself worse by thinking about stuff like this but I just feel the same really.

    Anyway I don't really want to call NHS direct yet because like my Mum's hanging around the phone and she'll be all like what, I just wanted to get some "preliminary opinions". I will obv. go to a doctor if it continues...

    You may have just dried your throat and lungs out a little, if you have a humidifier (or facesteamer) try breathing in some steam..or carefuly inhale steam from a boiled kettle..
    If this doesn't help then ring nhs direct

    Yeah that's what I thought. I don't feel like I'm going to die or anything it's just a little bit uncomfortable.

    Would taking asthma medication help?

    Go outside and get some fresh air .
    Also distract yourself, because this is most likely your mind playing tricks with you.
    I dont think that you inhaled enough for it to be harmful, unless you previously had at risk lungs, (e.g. previous lung problem).
    If you start having trouble breathing, or you are still worried tomorrow, then its doctor time.

    might do
    will probably be the placebo effect at work, but worth a try

    Dunno, I used to when I was little and my Dad is asthmatic, and he sometimes gives me some () when I have trouble breathing (like once a year or something).
